Join the Global Islamic Studies Center, on November 17th at 3:00 PM for “Muslims in the Balkans: On the Edges of Islam and Europe”, a lecture by Dr. Ermin Sinanović. In this talk, Dr. Ermin Sinanović explores the culture and politics of Eastern European Islam as it is lived, practiced, understood, and politicized in the Balkans. The talk focuses on Bosnia and Bosnian Muslim lives, in the additional context of Muslim-majority Balkan states of Kosovo and Albania, and Muslim minorities in other Balkan countries. As simultaneously European and Islamic countries, Bosnia and other Balkan Muslim nations occupy unique sociocultural, religious, and ethnic positions that place them on the margins of both Europe and Islam. “Muslims in the Balkans” inaugurates the Global Islamic Studies Center’s new “Politics and Culture in the Muslim World” series. Each talk in the series will focus on a different region or country in the Muslim world.

Ermin Sinanović is the executive director of the Center for Islam in the Contemporary World (CICW) at Shenandoah University, VA, where he is also a Scholar in Residence. He is a political scientist and scholar of Islam who is passionate about studying the comparative politics of Muslim societies. His research is on transnational Islamic revival, contemporary Islamic thought, and the institutionalization of Islam in the Balkans and Southeast Asia. Ermin speaks Bosnian, English, Arabic, and Malay.

This event is brought to you by the Global Islamic Studies Center and cosponsored by the Department of Slavic Languages and Literatures, the Center for Russian, East European and Eurasian Studies, Weiser Center for Europe and Eurasia, and the Center for Islam in the Contemporary World (CICW) at Shenandoah University.
